Microsoft is Flash content largely freeze Edge




Following Chrome and Safari will not just play future versions of the Edge-browser Flash content such as banners and animations. Microsoft’s Flash components not essential set standard on break. This summer is entered the function.

Microsoft says to an “intelligent” method used to freeze Flash content that is not essential for the website where the user goes on. Ads and animations using Flash, will be loaded and paused only be played if the user chooses by clicking. Games or video players that use Flash will not simply be blocked if they are central to a website.

Windows Insiders can test the feature in Windows 10 build 14316, which Wednesday released . The freeze of Flash banners will be implemented in the summer for all Edge users, as Microsoft releases the Anniversary Update for Windows 10. With the same update gets the browser support for extensions.

According to Microsoft leads the freezing of Flash content to battery saving on mobile devices and better performance while browsing. The creator of Edge browser does not comment specifically on the many security problems faced Flash, but is said to look forward to a future in which Flash is not a necessary part of the more ‘standard experience “Edge.

Microsoft adds that users with future updates gain even more control over the use of Flash. Like Chrome Edge features a built-in Flash plug-in that runs in its own sandbox. The plug-in can be stopped in its entirety, but to force it is not possible to “request to activate,” as it is possible for the individual plug-ins for other browsers.
